A New Industry Standard

For so long, Captive Portals have been the standard when it comes to accessing an open visitor wireless network. Enter your first name, last name, email address, date of birth, pet’s name, first line of your address…

What if things could be immeasurably simpler and even more secure for your guests who, let’s face it, just want to get online? What if, after a long day travelling, your guest could simply scan a QR code on their welcome brochure and be online within seconds?

Future Proof

Airangel are delighted to be able to offer our customers Next Generation Hotspot authentication. Next Generation Hotspot encompasses Hotspot 2.0 and OpenRoaming to provide a seamless experience for your loyal guests.

Hotspot 2.0 is a turn-key end-to-end solution that gives your guests a frictionless, portal-less, way to access your secure guest network. The guest needs only to download a onetime profile to their device and they’re online. No need to reauthenticate every 5 minutes, and no need to search for the correct SSID, the guest will automatically authenticate as soon as they enter the property.

Through our partnership with the Wireless Broadband Alliance, we are proud to offer our customers OpenRoaming. OpenRoaming is a new industry standard that looks to offer guests and visitors the chance to roam outside of your brand estate with the possibility to generate revenue through Sim Offloading.

Friction Free Access

Access can be granted in multiple ways, with the potential to offer exclusive packages to paying guests or loyalty members. Incentivise brand app downloads by granting access to those who download, or reward loyal members with greater speeds.

Use physical QR codes in-room to direct guests to a landing page to grant access to all who stay at your property. Access can be tailored to yours, and your guests, needs.

A Need for Change

Upcoming changes  to how Android (Sept ‘21) and Apple (Sept ‘20) devices randomise and share your device’s MAC Address means the Captive Portal will become a less attractive onboarding method in venues with overnight guests.

Known guest devices will effectively look like a new device every 24 hours and will have to reauthenticate. In order to continue to deliver a seamless experience brands should adopt the latest secure network authentication standards.
